Enjoy easy access to the Creeper Trail, which runs right alongside the river. Boasts a well-stocked kitchen, a family room/dining area, a large, partially covered porch with a gas grill, an oven, a dishwasher, AC, cable TV and Wi-Fi.

The space
At Laurel Run Cabins we strive to create a 'home away from home' atmosphere. Our cozy and charming log cabins have warm wood interiors, sweet country décor, plenty of extra quilts, games and reading material for cooler weather.

At Big Rock the whole private property is yours to enjoy, all the way down to the river.

Location

Damascus, Virginia, United States

Damascus is a small but lively town with lovely period architecture and a soul of southern hospitality. Boxed in on three sides by National Forest, the area offers unparalleled access to the outdoors for people of all fitness levels. Often referred to as “Trail Town, USA”, it is known for its hiking, biking, and heritage trails. The Appalachian Trail follows Laurel Avenue right through the heart of Damascus. The Virginia Creeper Trail, a 34-mile multi use trail from Abingdon to Whitetop Mountain, is one of the countries most cherished Rail-to-trails. The Trans-America National Bicycle Trail, the Iron Mountain Trail, the Daniel Boone Heritage Trail, the Crooked Road Musical Heritage Trail, and Virginia’s Birding and Wildlife Trail all pass through Damascus along their routes. Neighboring parks like Grayson Highlands State Park, Hungry Mother State Park, and the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area offer hiking at every degree of difficulty, and some of the best single-track mountain biking you will find in the U.S. The highest navigable road in Virginia leads to the summit of Whitetop mountain which provides panoramic views of three states from over 5,000 feet of elevation.
Aside from the (…………) feet of river frontage you’ll be able to enjoy at Laurel Run Cabins, there are many more nearby rivers and streams in both Virginia and Tennessee offering world class trout fishing and a wide variety of other game species, along with kayaking and rafting. South Holston Lake (20 minutes from the cabins) is gorgeous and never overcrowded. Renting a Pontoon boat, jet ski, SUP, or kayak are great ways to get out on the water and explore this unspoiled area.
Nearby Abingdon, a Virginia Historic Landmark and thriving artistic community, hosts the Barter Theater, which opened on June 10, 1933 and is the longest-running professional theatre in the nation. Enjoy unique local shops, historical buildings, a thriving farmers market and year-round live music at a number of venues. This year Abingdon was voted #1 in USA Today’s “Best Small-Town Food Scene” competition. Try White Birch, 128 Pecan, Morgan’s, The Peppermill, the Tavern, or The Harvest Table in nearby Meadowview.
